BL. W. B. Yeats

256. Larrissy, Edward. ‘Framing Ireland’. In Yeats the Poet: The Measures of Difference. London: Harvester Wheatsheaf, 1994.

Begins with a brief argument that Pound’s work with Fenollosa’s nô manuscripts ‘allowed Yeats to link the themes of tradition, family, the spirit-world, desire and the possible void at the heart of existence’, and that his use of the nô model ‘was by no means merely . . . technical experimentation’ but allowed him to incorporate principles of Zen Buddhism into his work (see also 113). Larrissy’s argument is acknowledged and essentially repeated in references to the nô in Terrence Brown’s Life of W. B. Yeats (Oxford: Blackwell, 1999).
